Health benefits of Okra

Saturday, January 11, 2014

I ran across this article this morning from a friend who is having trouble keeping her blood sugar levels stabilized while in a big truck. I was pleasantly surprised to discover all the health benefits of okra.. Check this link out,,,

Hubby and I love fried okra and I did NOT know you can eat the okra leaves by cooking them or adding them to salads. Who knew? I'm going to try okra prepared other ways besides fried and start reaping the health benefits!

    I love okra and have grown it for years!

One of the prettiest flowers, in the vegetable garden.

I never did know all of this information, though. Amazing!

I also never knew about eating the leaves! Can't wait to try, this Summer!

    I love boiled okra also. Good with chopped tomato and onion. As you know has to be tender though. I got some tough the other day.
